Flying Tiger Line

Flying Tiger Line Thursday December 24, 1964
The cargo plane flew off course and struck a mountain in the San Bruno range. The pilot, for undetermined reasons, deviated from departure course into an area of rising terrain where downdraft activity and turbulence affected the climb capability of the aircraft sufficiently to prevent terrain clearance.
